Prison Break: Amaury Nolasco's Sucre Joins List of Fox Revival's Returns

This latest addition to the cast of Fox’s Prison Break revival is quite… sweet.

For the nine-episode event series, which begins filming in Vancouver in April, Amaury Nolasco will reprise his role as Fernando Sucre, the actor announced Tuesday via Instagram.

For those keeping score, that’s now two of the nine characters TVLine said “must” be a part of the revival, while Robert Knepper is currently in talks to return as T-Bag (who plays a rather instrumental role in the continuation).

In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after “escape artist” Michael Scofield’s apparent death, Sara Tancredi (Colony‘s Sarah Wayne Callies) has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband (to be played by Royal Pains‘ Mark Feuerstein). But when clues surface suggesting that Michael (Legends‘ Wentworth Miller) may be alive, Sara teams with his brother Lincoln (Legends‘ Dominic Purcell) to engineer the series’ “biggest escape ever.”

Nolasco’s apres-Prison Break TV credits have included Southland, Chase, Gang Related, a short-lived ABC sitcom, Rizzoli & Isles and, most recently, the NBC comedy Telenovela.

    So great!

  2. Kate says:

    Yeah! Sucre was one of my favorites and as much as people focus on Lincoln and Michael, Michael and Sucre were the true friendship of the series. I mean and Lincoln gave him a chance to grow to actually like him because he even recognized he was Michael’s best friend.

    Oh yay!!!! So pleased. Fingers crossed for Jodi-Lynn O’Keefe and Keppner (who I feel is…in the bag already lol).

  4. Sammi says:

    I’m very happy Sucre will be back! I love his character, and his friendship with Michael was one of the best parts of the show!

  7. Television says:

    Hope this doesn’t mean that he is off of the show Telenovella.
